Listen to Skrillex’s headlining set from Chance the Rapper’s Magnificent Coloring Day Festival
As far as independent artists go, Chance The Rapper is making some game-changing moves right now. He is challenging the record industry’s status quo while simultaneously producing some of the most top-notch hip-hop out there. His latest feat includes throwing his own festival, Magnificent Coloring Day, for a hometown crowd in Chicago, bringing a thick cast of support for the show, and locking down an exclusive live stream on TIDAL. Chance even bought tickets for his own festival back from scalpers and redistributed them to his fans. The young Acid Rap proponent is unlike many other artists producing music right now, and Skrillex, one of his earliest major collaborators and supporters, was there to help the rapper cap off the biggest night of his still-budding career.
Holding down closing duties after Chance’s slot on Saturday night, Skrillex took to the decks to deliver a special headlining set from U.S. Cellular Field on Chicago’s south side. The set opened with Chance coming out to perform a raucous rendition of his summer smash “No Problem,” live to kick off Skrillex’s high-octane DJ performance. The set comes with all the staple bass weapons Skrillex has in his arsenal, then topped off with a heavy dose of hip-hop throughout. New unreleased music with Snails, tracks from Vic Mensa, Schoolboy Q, 4B, Zomboy and more all make their way into Skrillex’s set, capping off a special evening at Magnificent Coloring Day with one of his most memorable outings of the year.
